."The instinct for self-destruction is
common among all animals." he feaid,
' "and in many instances the causes aye
the same as might impel a man r

the. most pronounced of thes?'-causes

"One would scarc?l.T imagine ...that

We never had but one hippopotamus
that was guilty of suicide. Having in
jured his leg, he was replaced on the
read by another specimen, nnd left be
hind at the winter quarters to ?peni
the summer. The loneliness of the
great, deserted winter quarters was
too much for the animal, and ; he re
sisted all efforts of the man mehargj
of him to either cheer up or take his
food. He licerally starved himself to

"I have known of several instances
where giraffes did away , with them

for it. Each case that came uuder my

animals was owned by . the zoo. ..It is
an absolute ruelty to exhibit , one of

Iturke for HIk 'Btiint to Secure
. a HMay Vacation. ,
A new umpire -was added to the
indicator staff of the Three-Eye
league thin morning, when Frank
Conlin of Leavenworth. Kan., took
hi; " oath of office . before President
M. 11. Sexton. Conlin comes with
a good reputation having given sat
isfaction . In " the defu net Arkansas
league. ; He takes the place of Joe
Burke, the . big fellow, who umpired
the ante-seasOn games in this, city
and who had been here several times
since. !t will be remembered that
Burke asked for a 10-days-' vacation
some time ago. telling President Sex
ton at the time that he wished to go
to' his home in Birmingham, Ala.,
op account 9f the illnes of his moth
er, He was accordingly given a
check r for the salary which he had
coming, and President Sexton sup
posed he had gone to his home. It
developed yesterday, however, ; that
Burke, simply flunked out and has
been in Peoria ever since his "va
cation" commenced. He is about
ready to .go to work again, but he
has lost his chance as when the head
of the league learned of the trick
which Burke had played on him. he
decided that Conlin would be a, reg
ular man instead of merely filling in
while Burke was away.
